2017

My Time at the Netflix Apartment

A Netflix event sounds incredible, right? I was so fortunate to attend Netflix’s event at the St David’s Hotel in Cardiff for a great evening of teaser trailers and exclusives for their upcoming shows for 2017.

We walk up to the front door of the apartment which bares a sign with Netflix written on it. We are then greeted and filled with such warm welcomes to the apartment which looks absolutely incredible. The apartment is adorned with Netflix branded cushions, notepads, pillows, photo frames and so much more. There is a huge table filled with all of the beverages you could imagine from Champagne, Prosecco to bottles of Lager and soft drinks.
From the apartment, you get an incredible view from the ceiling to floor windows looking out along Cardiff Bay which is a sight I never can get tired of!

We get to know each other, introduce ourselves and give a brief background of our lives and almost instantly we burst out into conversations of TV Series, films and different platforms that we watch Netflix on.

We are then shown some really exciting teaser trailers from upcoming shows for 2017 that include 13 Reasons Why (this is based on the book by Jay Asher, which a review is coming up shortly!) and Mindhunter which instantly reeled me in just from the teaser trailer!
I have a ‘What shows am I looking forward to in 2017‘ post where I go into more detail about both of these shows and more. I have left links on each title to Netflix’s website so you can go watch the teaser trailers now.

The champagne is still in full flow, we are so kindly served canapés and macarons throughout the evening and I knew it was time that I had a photo opportunity with the Netflix Bed (Hey, I couldn’t resist – those cushions were a must!)

I would like to thank Netflix and the team so much for the incredible event and for inviting us along. We had such an amazing time, so appreciative for getting to see exclusive clips of upcoming shows that I am dying to watch and hope to stay in contact and see some future events to spread the word about even more great shows coming to us!

Now, less of me rambling on and more of me getting my Netflix binge started for the day!
Do you guys love Netflix? Which shows are you currently binging? I would love to know!

My Goals for 2017

What do I want to come out of 2017? What are my personal goals? Where do I want to be?

– By the end of 2017, I would love to feel a lot more confident with my Computer Animation skills, ready for the second year of my university course.

– Definitely up my photography game on my blog, I use to just snap a photograph quite quickly although still taking some consideration but I just never dived into really having a think about my composition and the use of props. So I am definitely looking into that!

– I want to improve myself. I have learnt that I need to take some time off from overloading myself with multiple tasks and just relax sometimes. If not, I know that my anxiety will be at it’s highest, I will have migraines galore and just run myself down!

– I want to read as much as I want, take some time out to do so.
If I want to sit back and play The Sims or watch a film, I will make time for that.

– I have given myself a target to become more active on Social Media, as I will get into a habit but a month later, I will disappear from the world of Twitter.

– Another goal for me, is to try and schedule a post for every Monday and Friday. So far I am slowly getting some scheduled ahead incase I become super busy with my university work but I can do this!

– I want to try to cook more, although whilst living in student accommodation it makes me not want to attempt it as there’s always a mess or people are not looking after our equipment.

– To move out of student accommodation and into an apartment with my boyfriend. I need that sense of independence again, especially as when I first went to university I was living in accommodation and then went on to travel for 16 months. I came back home, living with my parents and decided to go back to university again – so I feel like I have gone backwards slightly!

– I want to use my Wacom tablet more often and start to practice Digital drawing a lot more.

– I want to continue to draw in my sketchbooks on a daily basis as I got into a good habit of it, just before submission! Dang!

– I want to get out of my overdraft, as I seem to get paid a small amount and it just keeps going up and down, up and down.. a vicious circle!!

– Last goal from me for now, I would like to get out more and explore new places around me. I live in Cardiff and there is so much that I haven’t even seen of the city and I have lived here for 4 years! I need to get out of my routine of going from university to my room, from my room to town, back to my room.. *repeat*

So, just a brief post on what I would like to achieve in 2017! I know that they seem so simple and possibly silly to other people but I really need to just nail my balance of work and play! I would love to know what everybody else’s goals are and see if I can take any inspiration from these too! So let me know down below.
